Understand the Value of Out-of-Band Management (OOBM)

Enterprise routers are typically a single point of failure and may require an update, or sometimes just a reboot. Having OOBM capability allows network administrators to log in to routers remotely to perform configuration updates or reset commands. Once initial problems on an enterprise router have been resolved, network administrators can manage other network-connected devices. For branch locations, where little or no IT support exists, there are significant cost savings by eliminating the need for remote service calls by a technician.

No matter what department or functional area within a business, ask any manager and they will agree that any form of downtime ultimately has a negative impact on a company's bottom line. This, in fact, becomes an even more important issue when processing sales that are dependent on a connected point-of-sale system.

In today's competitive environment, it's imperative to ensure network connections at distributed enterprises have adequate backup across all locations. Retail locations, restaurants, kiosks, distribution centers or branch offices all require continuous connectivity to headquarters, network operations centers and secure payment processors.

Sierra Wireless provides a look at how a well-designed solution can be implemented and also deliver added value by enabling quick, remote fixes when network troubles occur.
